Mock (1/17)

Assumptions:

1. The Chiefs extend Alex Smith 4 years, $60m ($36m guaranteed), and OLB Justin Houston 6 years, $62m ($32m guaranteed).

2. The Chiefs restructure SS Eric Berry and OLB Tamba Hali.

3. The Chiefs resign WR Dexter McCluster to a 4 year, $19m deal, OG Geoff Schwartz to a 2 year, $7m deal and S Husain Abdullah to a 2 year, $4m deal.

3. The Chiefs resign NT Jerrell Powe, ILB Akeem Jordan, and LS Thomas Gafford to minimal deals.

4. The Chiefs let walk: OT Brandon Albert, OG Jon Asamoah, DE Tyson Jackson, OLB Frank Zombo, S Kendrick Lewis, S Quinten Demps

5. The Chiefs cut: CB Dunta Robinson

6. Chiefs sign WR Jeremy Maclin (Eagles) to a 3 year, $15m deal, OT Winston Justice (Broncos) to a 1-year, $2m deal, DE Antonio Smith (Texans) to a 2 year, $9m deal.

On with the show:

1.23. TE Jace Amaro, Texas Tech

Any familiar with the Red Raider knows what makes Amaro so special. He's a great athlete, he's big and he's fast. But Amaro's special sauce is his route running. He is an unheard-of route runner at the TE position. He doesn't rely on pure athleticism like Jimmy Graham, or unbelievable hands like Rob Gronkowski. He's more like a Tony Gonzalez, in that he run a sharp route, gain separation and find soft spots in any defense.

3.87. OLB Michael Sam, Missouri

Martin is not a prototypical edge rusher, but if he's going to make any noise in the NFL, this is going to have to be where it is: in a system that is not going to ask him to produce right away, and use his extraordinary burst off the edge in passing situations.

This, admittedly, is an unorthodox pick for John Dorsey. He prefers better athletes that you can later mold into football players, and I almost picked Kareem Martin here, but I'll go with Sam because I love his effort on the field, and I think he'll give the Chiefs their most immediate help at backup OLB since Justin Houston backed up Andy Studebaker in 2011.

4.119. S Tevin McDonald, Eastern Washington

Google didn't tell me if McDonald was declaring this year, but it'd make a ton of sense for Dorsey/Reid to go with him if he does. He's a very talented ballhawk who was so critical to UCLA's defense, his ejection from the team collapsed their secondary. He's played well for EWU, and while he is a problem child, the Chiefs can afford adding one this offseason. McDonald's brother players in the NFL, and his father played as well. Dorsey/Reid love bloodlines.

5.151. CB Keith McGill, Utah

McGill is a physical freak at corner, standing a tall 6'3" with a really fluid backpedal/hipturn. McGill's more of a work in progress than he is a Day One contributor, but the Chiefs already potentially have their top 4 CBs locked in with Flowers, Smith, Cooper, and Parker. McGill can take some time to develop if need be.

6.177. NT Justin Ellis, Louisiana Tech

Ellis just clocked in at the East/West Game at 6'1", 350 lbs. The Chiefs need more help for Poe at NT, as playing every snap evidently wore him down. I love me some Jerrell Powe, and hopefully he will have an elevated role. But I expect the Chiefs to add some NT talent this offseason even if they do.

6.183. S Antone Exum, Virginia Tech

Exum is a really promising talent that's missed a couple years with ACL and ankle issues, dropping him three full rounds where his talent would otherwise suggests he belongs. In Kansas City, with our depleted S corps, we can afford to take a risk on this player late in the 6th and give him time to heal properly, a la Sanders Commings in 2013.

7.215. RB Roderick McDowell, Clemson

I would roll the dice on McDowell, even if he is a one-year wonder. All the Clemson RBs come out of that program as primo NFL runners, and McDowell looked really good this year as a Cyrus Gray-sized runner.

I doubt he gets cut. Surely he's got some trade value.

Not with the way that he played last year. One of the worst cover corners that I saw this season. There is a reason why he always has so many tackles.

Honestly think the only way you would think of signing Maclin is on a 1 year prove it deal. Should have the leverage given the depth and talent available in the draft this year. 1 year 3-4 mil deal might do it given he is coming off of a significant injury.

I think Flowers played injured most of the year. That or he's just breaking down and it's time to move on.

He got crapped on by a true #1 in Dez Bryant when he was healthy. He's being paid like a #1 shutdown corner and has failed miserably in living up to that billing due to his lack of size and speed.

I don't understand how of why Flower's is even in the conversation of being cut... Sure, he had a down year and was terrible... There's no arguing that, but to cut him straight out? He's been a top five to ten cornerback most of his career. Cutting him would be stupid after one year. Renegotiate his contract or something, but don't cut the one cornerback on our roster that has been solid and is still relatively young
